THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, APRIL 13, 1898.
5 THE TOWNS AROUND. GREENSBORO, Tribute to Mrs. Keniston, jjrg. Mary E. Keniston whose death was recently noticed in the Caledonian, had a life of ttnusual interest. ghe was born in Peacbam, Dec. 23, 1828, and died in Greensboro, March 21, 18'JS, nter five days of intense suffering from pneumonia. Her parents removed, to Greensboro in her infancy and most of her ltle was spent there. Her educa tion beyond the home schools was at Phillip's Academy, Danville, and with Miss Nancy Swift at Hartford, Conn. She always gratefully referred to the developing influences at Danville; in fluences beyond the school room as well as within it. During the great revival there in 1850-1851 she was a convert and unitid with the Congregational church, Rev. John Dudley, pastor. Loving krowledge and loving to im part it, she joined the band of teachers lent West in the famous Governor Slade enterprise, and was stationed at Cflr jhoge, Missouri. Those who took com rnission under Governor Slade received preparatory instruction from Miss Swilt at Hartlord, promised to remain in the service two years, and not to marry in the meantime. Mrs. Keniston was twice married. Her fir6t husband was J. C. Ellsworth, who had been a teacher among the Cherokee Indians, but their home was in Greensboro, where she joined the Congregational church thirty nine years ago. Afterwards as the wife of Nathan Keniston her home was still in Greens boro, and Mr. Keniston survives her at the age of eighty-two. Her enthusiasm, responsiveness and unselfishness made her an inspiring companion. She had the charm of silence regarding her own burdens but was most ready to help in beating those of others. The needy of all conditions will miss her. She always seemed to have some gift in store lor every demand upon her. In the Sunday School she was an instructive and in teresting teacher, and had the training of a class ol young ladies, till increasing deafness interfered. The church, whose intetests were always first to her, will miss her sadly. The various benevolences which she delighted to sustain must find another friend to take her place.

The Maine was a second-class battle ship with two turrets and her keel was laid in 1888. She was one of our small est armored vessels, having a displnce mentol 6682tons and aspeedol 17 knots per hour. Her engines had 9000 horse power and the ship cost th government fully $3,000,000. Her main battery consisted oi four ten-inch breech-loading guns and her sicondary battery con sisted ol eight six pounder and tight one pounder rapid firing guns and four Galling guns. The Maine was 324 feet long and was one ol the few warships built at the United States ravy yard from designs supplied by the navy department. It is not generally remembered that Capt. Sigsbee had his nerve tried a year ago. Last July he run the ship into an East river pier in New York as the alternative ol ramming a crowded excursion boat that was right in tront ol the Maine. The big warship cut a freight barge al most in two, but tne excursion Doat was saved. Harper's Weekly ol recent dates, he Munsey's lor April and Col. Forbes' Vermonter all have fine pictures of the boat with a general description of her.
